Visiting Frankenmuth, MI
Frankenmuth in 1845. They were advised to settle here by the Rev Frederick Schmid, Lutheran pastor of Ann Arbor's German colony, founded in the 1820s. Other German agricultural villages were founded in the Saginaw Valley in the 1840s and 1850s. Here as in many other areas of Michigan, German settlers have contributed greatly to the state's cultural heritage.
Frankenmuth but it was enough time to walk around and take in the beauty of this town. The day started out rainy and gray but by the time we arrived it was beautiful. The sky was so blue and the sun was hot!
covered bridge?! So pretty!
brewery too! Such a fun place to visit. I love that this little German town is such a hidden gem of Michigan.
Zehnders Marketplace which included a bakery. I got the most delicious strawberry tart that had a layer of sugar cookie crust, custard, white chocolate and of course strawberries. It was SO good.

Have you ever been to Frankenmuth? If you live in MI you must go and if you ever find yourself visiting MI make sure Frankenmuth is on your list. I also learned that there is a town called Holland, MI and now I must go there next!
